Wow! some real price differences!
I have 7 quotes, 2 more appointments to get through before making a decision. I also weeded through some additional ones before setting up appointments.
1-My current cleaning company: price reflects yet another increase. This is why I am getting quotes.
2-competitor cleaning company: same exact price (didn't care for the rep's attitude either)
1- just $20 less than the cleaning companies charge before tax-sorry, I don't think so
2-a local woman who would charge 1/2 of what the services above are asking
3-another woman who works all over the state, which seems odd, who is also asking 1/2 of what the cleaning services are
Paired cleaning teams:
1-a husband-wife team from some distance away, who have a commercial cleaning service franchise. They are asking $5 more than the individual cleaners listed above
2-a local woman who has a 2 person cleaning company, asking $10 more than the individuals
I have another person with a 2 person cleaning company coming this afternoon, and finally another individual coming on Friday.
I have followed up on references, await responses. Meanwhile, I will finish getting quotes, follow up on insurance coverage. I really liked individual woman # 2 (my first quote so I am hesitant to select her until I've completed my homework). Either of the paired cleaning teams seem good as well. A deciding factor for me may end up being whether or not the cleaners are insured, legal and on the books. As a renter, I don't want any issues nor do I want to set myself up for any possible personal liability.
